that 76 sound
the "clang" sound coming from Weir's Ibanez and "twang" sound coming from Jerry's Travis Bean never sounded sweeter. Excellent matrix

OK, I don't like the rating system. Almost every show I listen to is either 4-5 stars, as this is the best band ever, and also it's like "what's your favorite color?" I don't know. I kind of like em all I guess. Blue skies are cool because of their relation to the yellow sun and the green grass and trees. The color 1971 is great for its bluesy edginess in contrast to 1979's B3 smokiness and Brent's awesome harmonies. So I like each color partially for its relation and contrast to the others - they're all good.
1976 is great for its intricacy. From the tinkery cymbal stuff to the in-the-pocket smoothness and the tighter harmonies, you could tell they were really LISTENING to each other, and this era is the grooviest.
This is a fine show. First of all, the matrix mix is gorgeous. I always liked '76, but haven't listen to all that much of it because some of the recordings were less than stellar -- but this mix is astounding. More earthy and yet more pristine than most official (24+ track) live releases. Even the AUD patches are seemless. GREAT job on the mix! Honestly, the kicking snare/bass reminds me a little of "Ladies and Gentleman...the Grateful Dead" - can't say enough good stuff about the mix.
Song choices not my favorite throughout, but all well played - smooth '76. H-S-F is the reason I arrived here. This one's great, in the pocket, with some deeper jamming in Slipknot! and a great transition into Franklin's. One of my favorite versions.
Overall a really good show with an exceptional H-S-F and an astonishing mix.
I regret missing all my opportunities to see this band back in the day, but I'm grateful for this site - DL'd so many shows when it was still kosher - they're all in boxes during house renovations - and I still enjoy streaming this stuff more than any other band in the world. I keep coming back, and it's because of shows like this and the folks who take so much care in editing these classic works of art.
If forced, 4/5 stars for the show (just a song choice thing keeping it from a 5) and 5.5/5 stars for the mix.
Pig Street !

Another mellow 76'
I DL this baby last night from another Blog, after reading the reviews of other versions on this site I conclude that this is the best, all songs are typical of 76' dreamy, chilled out and polished since they were on their first month long tour since their hiatus. Help> Slip> Franklin's does not disappoint.4 for sound 3.5 for overall show.
